Continuing the legacy of developing researches which are useful and relevant, Research Director, Dr. Ramona Isabel S. Ramirez spearheaded the “Writing Winning Proposals:Project Development and Resource Generation for Research, Development and Extension”on 17-19 July 2019 at CN Divinagracia Hall-CBSUA.
The essential purpose of a research proposal is to convince the evaluator of the value of a project and its competence. This proves that the researchers have plan of work and the project will be successful. Funding agencies have to be sure that it is not another useless piece of the research proposal, but a profound work of research that will be extremely important for academe and most especially to the community.
The CBSUA-Research Division, in line with its aim to promote quality researches and produce research proposals worthy of being funded either institutionally or externally. The division initiated three-day write shop on proposal writing to give knowledge to the faculty-researchers how to make project proposals and enhance their technical writing abilities.
